Bellafill placed in vermilion border with swelling
I don't use Bellafill in this area. At this point, you should just wait it out. I wouldn't worry at this point. In my experience (I have some in my face too), Bellafill has some swelling for a few days. The final outcome is always less than the original correction. The risk with placement in the lips is nodules and is related to the muscle activity in this area.
Thank you for your question. You are not "overworrying" - many patients are concerned about the aesthetic results of their procedural (surgical or non-surgical) in the hours and days immediately following. The truth is that bruising and swelling are very common for the first 48-72 hours after the procedure, especially involving the lips. For that reason, please remain patient with your recovery and follow your surgeon's recovery instructions carefully.
Our office does not recommend bellafill for the augmentation of the lips as there are plenty of better and more targeted injectibles for the lip areas. Please always consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon.

Bellafill is not currently approved for lip augmentation and can last more than five years. If you are unhappy or have side effects it may not be possible to treat. I would advise you to look into Volbella instead. Best, Dr. Green
Lip swelling post fillers
The swelling can last up to 3 weeks. I would not be too afraid as this may just be that. If you are concerned that there was more injected after the swelling does subside, you may have products like saline injected to even the other side out in order to produce a symmetric look. Bellafill is not completely permanent. If you do not trust your physician I would suggest consulting with a cosmetic surgeon who specializes in revision injections. Best, Dr. Berger
